The Beneficiary of an O1 visa is the person who will be applying to enter the U.S. and benefiting from the O1 visa status by being able to work either as an employee or independent contractor. The Petitioner is the (sponsor) company or person who files the petition on the Beneficiary’s behalf.

The Beneficiary and the Petitioner (sponsor) are not allowed to be the same person.
